SPOTLIGHT ON SUCCESS

VETERAN MAKES A CAREER CHOICE TO HELP OTHER VETERANS

VETERAN MAKES A CAREER CHOICE TO HELP OTHER VETERANS

A student in the medical assisting degree and business management programs at the Nashville Campus, John York, came to National College upon his discharge from the United States Army after being injured while on active duty in Iraq. John said that he wants to make a difference in the lives of other veterans by obtaining his degree in medical assisting so he can give back to his fellow soldiers.

John said he has an advantage over students that attend larger schools because of “the smaller class size along with the instructors being so knowledgeable and going the extra mile to help you succeed.” As a veteran, he encourages his fellow service members to consider National College because “they will receive a good education and the support to finish their degrees.”

John said he first became interested in the medical field when he served in the US Army. He took combat lifesaving skills courses where he learned how to triage, cover wounds, administer an IV, and stabilize a soldier that has been injured. John is hoping to bring the skills he learned during combat into the classroom as well as in the doctor’s office— after graduation.  John said, “After completing my medical [assisting] degree, I want to work as a practice manager or partner with a physician or physician assistant to open a clinic.” John also has big plans to help his fellow veterans who have been wounded in combat and ensure they get proper medical care.
